Gift Basket Etiquette
Gift baskets are a safe, thoughtful and sensible choice. The beauty of gift baskets is their universal appeal. Gift baskets can be given to men, women and children. When choosing a gift basket consider not only the occasion, but the recipients likes and dislikes.
It is suitable and gracious to give the new homeowner a thoughtful gift basket. The appropriate time to give this gift basket is either when you first visit or else have it delivered to the new house once the owners have settled in.
Contact the recipient's organization to find out if there are any restrictions on gift giving. Select a corporate gift basket that the recipient will enjoy, but also one that enhances the image of your company or organization. Look for one that reflects the recipient's job, interests, and the value of the relationship. Don't send anything that could embarrass the recipient or be misconstrued.
Guests invited to the wedding have an obligation to send a gift, whether they are attending or not. Selecting a gift basket should be an enjoyable process. When you send a gift basket after the wedding, it is convenient for the newly weds to send the gift basket to their home.
When sending a baby gift basket, your intention is to spread joy to the new family. It is also to supply them with any essential they may need for their new baby. Sending a gift basket filled with items such as soap, lotion, blankets, bibs and plush animals is acceptable. Include the names of both husband and wife on the personalized message card. You never want to make anyone feel left out of the joyous occasion of receiving an opening a new baby gift basket. This personal touch will surely be a remembered sentiment to your recipient. Another great way to show you care is to send a big brother or big sister gift along with the baby gift basket. This will make every one in the family feel loved and cared for. If possible, make sure to find out ahead of time the name of the baby as well as the gender of the new baby.
